In her third cookbook LA DOLCE VITA, Italian born Silvia Colloca responds to the misconception that Italian food is unhealthy with her honest, authentic guide to ‘the sweet life’ - guilt free.

Amidst the current hype for healthy eating fixes like the zucchini spaghetti, cauliflower parmesan cheese and pumpkin lasagne sheets that infiltrate our newsfeeds - Silvia’s approach is simple and cost-effective: enjoy fresh and sustainable food.

Italians, contrary to popular belief, do not gorge on spaghetti carbonara and multiple bottles of wine every day. Italian home cooking is the basis of the globally researched and much proclaimed Mediterranean diet, focusing on fresh fruit andvegetables, legumes and fish rather than lots of dairy, meat, animal fats and sugars.

Whether your dinner guests are vegan, vegetarian, gluten-, grain-, egg- and dairy free, La Dolce Vita has a selection of delicious recipes that will solve all catering requirements without fiddly extras or detractions. Silvia reminds us that food is an occasion to gather, nurture, entertain and most importantly, celebrate life. And it’s so easy with recipes for children’s parties, edible gifts, picnics and of course, desserts, that explore the true flexibility of Italian cuisine.

Food lover SILVIA COLLOCA is a woman of many talents: professional actress and opera singer, published author,blogger and sensational cook. After spending her childhood in the kitchens of her mother and grandmothers, Silvia absorbed much of their Italian culinary heritage. Since moving to Australia several years ago, Silvia has kneaded, beaten, rolled, chopped and pounded her way to an authentic Italian identity in her Sydney kitchen. Silvia’s first cookbook, Silvia’s Cucina, was published in 2013, and her second book, Made in Italy with Silvia Colloca, published in 2014, in conjunction with her debut television series of the same name.

Silvia will appear in her own upcoming series, Silvia’s Italian Table, to screen on the ABC.
